In an attempt to log into my old email address, I discovered I was locked out. It gave me the message "Login is disabled because there is an issue with your account. Please contact support to resolve the issue.", which I promptly googled. The only help anyone got was asking for help on this forum, and having their account unlocked. I cannot log into the original account, however, as I used an all-lowercase password and the website does not allow that. If anyone could help me reguardless, I will put the address behind a spoiler tag.obscured for customer security
Or if you're a TalkTalk broadband customer or recent customer you can change your email password in MyAccount > My Services > Webmail - Manage Webmail if the email is listed as one of the 5 email addresses.
Are you able to log in to MyAccount? Is the talktalk.net email address listed there?
I have not set up password recovery for the account, I am no longer a talktalk customer and I cannot log in.
I tried the password reset option but it sent the email to the account I am unable to use because it is locked out.
Is there any way you could help with this?
If the email account has just been suspended then it ought to be possible to recover it but it looks like you'll need to provide some verification of ownership.
